Michael Redd will officially retire as a Milwaukee Buck


Sharpshooter Michael Redd will officially announce his retirement from the NBA on Wednesday when the Bucks host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Redd is set to address the crowd before the first and second quarters.

Redd was drafted by the Bucks with the 43rd overall selection in the 2000 NBA Draft and went on to play 11 seasons in Milwaukee, where he averaged 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Redd’s name ranks among the all-time Bucks career leaders in the following categories: points (4th – 11,554); scoring average (5th – 20.0 ppg);games (7th, 578); minutes (5th, 19,334); field goals made (7th, 4,063); field goals attempted (4th, 9,045); three-point field goals made (2nd, 1,003); three-point field goals attempted (1st, 2,619); three-point field goal percentage (8th, .383); free throws made (2nd, 2,425); free throws attempted (3rd, 2,887); and free throw percentage (10th, .840).

On Nov. 11, 2006, Redd set the Bucks franchise individual game scoring record with a 57-point output vs. Utah at the Bradley Center, breaking the mark of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (55 points) that stood since Dec. 10, 1971. Redd also holds the NBA record for three-point field goals made in one quarter when he sank eight triples in the fourth quarter vs. Houston on Feb. 20, 2002.

Redd was once considered one of the elite shooters in the NBA and is obviously a fan favorite in Milwaukee.
